Ballad Of Davy Crockett

	  		
G                         C     G 
Born on a mountain top in Tennessee 

                      A7          D7 
Greenest state in the Land of the Free 

G                         C 
Raised in the woods so he knew every tree 

D7                                        G 
He killed himself a bear when he was only three 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett  

D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier  


                              C        G 
Off through the woods he went marching along 

                A7              D7 
Making up yarns and a singing a song 

G                           C 
Itching for fighting always righting a wrong 

D7                                  G 
He was rangy as a bear and twice as strong 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett  

D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier  


                             C          G 
Fought single-handed through the Indian War 

                              A7           D7 
Till the tribes went west and peace was in store 

G                       C 
The rest of his life he took the stand 

D7                               G 
That justice was due the redskin man 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett 
  
D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier 
  
  
                            C        G 
He went off to Congress and served a spell 

                         A7          D7 
Fixing up the government and laws as well 

G                          C 
Took over Washington so we heard tell 

D7                                      G 
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett 
  
D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier 
  

                        C          G 
He heard of Houston and Austin and so 

                       A7          D7 
To the Texas plains he just had to go 

G                           C 
Where the land was free and there was room to grow 

D7                               G 
And he fought and died at the Alamo 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett 
  
D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier  


                           C              G 
Davy's land is the biggest Davy's land is best 

                          A7       D7 
From grassy plains to the mountain crest 

G                    C 
He's ahead of us all meeting the test 

D7                            G 
Following his legend into the West 


     C    G 
Davy Davy Crockett  

D7                   G 
King of the wild frontier
